One of the greatest blessings in my life is my wonderful family. I am so thankful to have parents who love me and who brought me up in a Christian home. Today, of course, I especially want to celebrate my mother. She is one of the hardest working people I know, but she also is one of the most loving and caring people you’d ever want to meet.
I couldn’t begin to count the things my mother had taught me. Reading is an easy one, as we love to joke about my mispronunciation of the word “pulp.” But there are so, so many more things. Caring for others, serving God with our talents, praying with a whole heart, being dedicated to important things — not merely when we get around to it.
My heart overflows with love and gratitude for her, her example, her love and her friendship. I just want to say how very much I love her.
